GOP senator: Trump decision not to implement new sanctions against Russia is "perplexing"

Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) on Tuesday said it’s “perplexing” that the Trump administration opted to not implement additional sanctions on Russia for meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

"The one thing we know for sure already is the Russians did attempt to meddle in our election. And not only should there be a price to pay in terms of sanctions, but also we need to put safeguards in place right now for the elections for this year,” Collins said on CNN’s “New Day.”

The Senate passed a bill last year by a vote of 98-2 approving increased sanctions on Russia in response to the country’s interference in the 2016 election. The bill also passed by a wide margin in the House.


The Trump administration told Congress on Monday that the legislation itself serves as enough of a deterrent and, as a result, the actual sanctions would not be implemented.

4. Wouldn't you like to play poker against Sen. Collins?

"But you said you thought I had the winning hand for sure this time!" "What can I tell you, Susan? I'll take all the chips on the table now. I'm sure you'll win the next hand. Got any money left?"
